Arthur :

It is real funny with all the names in different areas !

In Germany are Narcissus  : Osterglocken ( bells of Easter )
In Bavaria : Maerzenbecher ( cup of March )
in the rest of Germany are Maerzenbecher : Leucojum aestivum

My rockery white is not correct either, and don't mention the crocus I got from them. No order this year!
